you, mr. chair and colleagues, i appreciate your consideration of the legislation in us today to continue changes to our city's local business enterprise ordinance to increase contracting opportunities for so-called certified puc lbe, which are small businesses located within our regional water service area, but outside of the boundaries of san francisco. the puc lbe program was created in 2006 to allow small business that operate within our puc water service area to compete for work on the water system improvement program; as know the wisp program has two-thirds of costs being paid by regional water customers of the sfpuc and so the thinking in 2006 it was appropriate for those communities that pay for our water systems improvement to also yield the local economic benefits that are certified puc lbe contracting program can provide. since the wisp program is nearing completion, but the sfpuc has additional projects within the water service area that are not part of wisp construction, the changes in this legislation would allow puc it to continue to support the small businesses

act for us. the clerk's office has three items before you, the first is the area plan infrastructure committee, it was established in 2010 and sponsored by former supervisor soef fee maxwell, the response from the planning department indicated the committee has not yet in over one year, since this committee has not met in the last four years, it's fallen below the standard to continue and we're requesting you recommend the full board that we repeal this resolution, the next item is the neighborhood community justice task force established by ordinance in june, 2010, it was sponsored by supervisor david chu, since the passage of the ordinance, a vacancy notice has been put on the board's website, since july, 2010, however, no members of the public has shown interest during the last two and a half years and no applications have been received to serve on the bore, so this task force we feel has not met the required standard to continue, they haven't had their first meeting, there are no plans to do so and with the blessing, we recommend to the full board that this be dissolved. the fina
